Madonsela's report is expected to shed light on the more than R200 million spent refurbishing Zuma's private homestead at Nkandla in KwaZulu-Natal.

Public Protector Thuli Madonsela was still waiting on Wednesday for outstanding information to complete her probe into the upgrade of President Jacob Zuma's Nkandla homestead.

"There is no new update on Nkandla. We have done our part, we have a draft report written, and with any little time we get we keep editing it," she told reporters in Pretoria.

"This is all we can do until we get that information." Madonsela said she could not disclose who was supplying the information. "The comprehensive request for the information was on the 11th of August," she said. "There was some clarity, that was requested by the party concernedand we have done our best to provide that clarity."

She did not think there was any malice involved in the delay.

"We have now given the party until the 30th of September to provide the information."
